Register and Sheavly co-author report on marine litter

July 29, 2009

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has published a report co-written by Seba Sheavly, a 1975 Longwood graduate, and Katie Register, executive director of Clean Virginia Waterways (CVW) which is based at Longwood.

Sheavly is president of Sheavly Consultants Inc., an environmental consulting firm located in Virginia Beach. The report, "Guidelines on the Use of Market-based Instruments to Address the Problem of Marine Litter," was commissioned by UNEP and provides an overview of economic tools and strategies that encourage a change in behavior that will lead to positive and lasting benefits on the marine and coastal environments. The full report, issued in April, can be accessed from the United Nations Environment Programme web site.
